Oil Dip stick stuck in dipstick tube

Anyone ever had this problem? I was changing spark plugs, on the last one the wrench slipped and I took off the head of the Oil dip stick and it slid about 4-5 inches down into the tube. I was looking how to remove the entire tube itself, but couldn't get it. Any remedies would be great. Thanks !

How about a tool retriever? I have one that will snake into a small spot & will go down the dipstick tube then you push a plunger in & out of the end is three little prongs that might grab it.

Small telescoping magnet?

The whole tube should come out after removing one bolt in a bracket, then wiggle like heck while pulling.
